Health Claims Seminar: understanding EC regulation

On 29 September experts will guide you through Regulation No 1924/2006 for health claims in food labelling, presentation and advertising


The EC Regulation No 1924/2006 governs the use of nutrition and health claims in the labelling, presentation and advertising of foods. It aims at enabling consumers to make healthier choices by protecting them from misleading information and ensuring a level playing field for food businesses. This complex and still evolving piece of legislation has many facets.

On 29 September, our Health Claims seminar, organised by the Government Chemist Programme in cooperation with the Association of Public Analysts Training Committee and APA Educational Trust, brings together an impressive array of speakers to guide us through the complexities of health claims and the seminar ends with an opportunity to discuss the way forward.
